Domaine des Etangs

A fairytale castle nestled deep in the Charente countryside

Journey back to the golden age of romance in Domaine des Etangs – a meticulously restored country retreat. With its elegant turrets, sweeping grounds and magical setting between forest and lake, it's a château fit for royalty. Paddle a rowing boat on the water, cycle through the estate or simply sit back and savour the tranquil surrounds.

Outdoors, you'll find yourself in a storybook landscape of waterways and woodland. As you stroll, look out for wildlife – from herons and otters to deer and Limousin cows. Inside, the real jewel in the crown is the collection of exclusive bedrooms. Set within individual buildings dotted around the grounds, they are rich in period features. The hotel also features a wellness space with treatments for the entire family and Michelin-star restaurant Dyades, which offers delectable dishes created with ingredients grown on site.

If you ever tire of the views and natural beauty, there's plenty around this boutique hotel to entice you out. The Haute Charente Lakes, woven through with walking trails, are a picture-perfect place to spend a day. Or you could swap two legs for four and spend an afternoon horse riding. Little ones are well served too, with the Haute Charente Adventure Park nearby. Whatever you choose, returning to the spellbinding Domaine des Etangs at the end of each day is sublime.


Enjoy your stay!

Beautiful

Extraordinarily good looking property and gardens, matched by high quality interiors and beautiful art installations. Very peaceful place to recharge, although a separate adults only pool would improve this aspect, as kids will be kids by the pool.
